I personally believe that Blizzard fudges their numbers. Since they technically never allow account deletion (you can only terminate your current subscription but can reopen it and reactivate your account at any time) my belief is that Blizzard reports on the total number of accounts they have... not the total number of active accounts.

Anecdotal evidence such as lots of reports of "emptier" servers and the fact that the global wowarmory only contains 4+ million characters (at how many per account) seems to support this theory.

Looks pretty interesting. There was a first person shooter mech game that I really liked a while back (can't for the life of me remember the name), and this looks pretty much like that one.

@Mike:

Are you thinking of Shogo: Mobil Armor Division? That was a great game from back in the day - it was from Monolith if I remember correctly.

Ted I doubt Blizzard would Fudge up there numbers you forget to take into account that You can terminate an account completely or cancel the subcrpition. The reason certain servers are more emptier is that most of the well populated servers are over packed hence sometimes they merge servers. Plz stop trying to belittle Blizz if you dont have solid facts to back you up.

Seems like Robot Rakion. I may have to give this a try. Sounds interesting enough.
